Neil Young: Depth, darkness and despair in new album

Advertisement

For over four decades Neil Young has been one of the great stalwarts of modern music.

He's an artist who is as likely to confound as delight his fans, switching regularly between delicate acoustic ballads and noisy electric rock.

For his latest album Americana - on which he reunites with his old band Crazy Horse - he has tackled old American folk songs.

In a rare interview with Front Row presenter John Wilson, Neil Young discussed the dark and violent themes behind his latest work.

The full interview can be heard in a special edition of Front Row on BBC Radio 4 at 7.15pm on Friday 8 June.
